I use pixabay a lot @jkennedy93
Have you tried Stencil – you can access images and edit them within the app

The article mentions the Creative Commons site but doesn’t include the search function, which I use heavily for images to use online. go to and check both boxes (which limits the search to images you can use for commercial purposes as well as those you can modify or adapt). Then pick your resource. I find a lot of great stuff on Flickr, but this also gives you access to Google Images, Wikimedia Commons, and others.
